Former Superman actor Dean Cain told Fox News Tuesday DC Comics’ decision to have the current Man of Steel come out as bisexual was not “bold” or “brave.”
“I say they’re bandwagoning,” Cain, 55, told “Fox & Friends First,” noting that Robin and Captain America are now both attracted to men as well.
“If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave,” he explained. “Brave would be having him fighting for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay.”
“They’re talking about having him fight climate change and the deportation of refugees, and he’s dating a hacktivist — whatever a hactivist is. Why don’t they have him fight the injustices that created the refugees whose deportation he’s protesting? That would be brave, I’d read that. Or fighting for the rights of women to attend school and have the ability to work and live and boys not to be raped by men under the new warm and fuzzy Taliban — that would be brave. There’s real evil in this world today, real corruption and government overreach, plenty of things to fight against. Human trafficking — real and actual slavery going on. … It’d be great to tackle those issues.”
